Thousands of Muslims have held a demonstration outside Google headquarters in London


Thousands of Muslims have held a demonstration outside Google headquarters in London to protest YouTube’s refusal to remove a “hateful and offensive” US film against Prophet Mohammad (PBUH).

The 10,000-strong rally organized by Muslim Action Forum was held to force Google to remove the sacrilegious movie from YouTube video-sharing website.

“Our next protest will be at the offices of Google and YouTube across the world. We are looking to ban this film,” organizer Masoud Alam said.

“This is not freedom of expression, there is a limit for that. This insult of the Prophet will not be allowed,” he added.

Muslim Action Forum, which was created in response to the release of the insulting film, says in its manifesto that it “unreservedly condemns the preposterous film vilifying Islam and desecrating the sanctity of the Holy Prophet Mohammad (PBUH)” and calls for a “Campaign for Global Civility” in response to the video.

The protesters outside Google headquarters carried placards reading “Campaign for Global Civility” and “Don’t they teach manners in Google” in line with the group’s manifesto.

The rally that was the third of its kind in a month comes ahead of a planned millions-strong march againt the sacrilegious film in Hyde Park, central London, in the coming weeks.
